    TV producer Leslie Grief has rarely ventured onto the big screen since working on Walker: Texas Ranger. His last experience, directing and cowriting the 2006 Chevy Chase bomb "Funny Money", might have convinced a more cautious man to stick to exec-producing generic reality-TV fare. Instead, Grief returns with "10 Rules for Sleeping Around", which should hammer the last nail into the coffin of his theatrical aspirations. Inept in just about every way, the farce about two pairs of would-be philanderers may well prove to be 2014's most unenjoyable comedy, provided Adam Sandler doesn't have a third Grown Ups planned for this summer. Unlike Grown Ups, this picture will make only a brief flicker in theaters before reaching "Video-On-Demmand" purgatory.

    Jesse Bradford plays Vince, the numbskull who sets the story in motion by convincing his wife, Cami (Virginia Williams), that they should have an open relationship governed by a douchebag decalogue of his own design; things go predictably awry when Cami decides to exercise this freedom with a cougar-hunting Hamptons horndog. At the same time, Vince has sold his dim-bulb bro, Matt (Chris Marquette), on proposing a similar sexual arrangement to his easily flustered girlfriend, Kate (Tammin Sursok), who's soon chasing Cami out to the Hamptons to join in the misbehavior. Mistaken identities and misinterpreted clues pile up as the four characters separately try to crash a party-of-the- season thrown by a notorious Hollywood hedonist (Michael McKean).

    These leads have scores of credits among them, but as directed by Grief most would have a hard time landing a gig in a deodorant commercial. Dialogue spills out indiscriminately, its lack of comic timing not helped by Richard Nord's editing.

    Failing at banter, Grief tries to score laughs with some faux-naughty outrageousness, most of which involves a teenage boy running around naked, with feathers stuck to him, with an amorous dog in hot pursuit. A funnier film might have gotten away with having this desperate kid fend off his canine pursuer with campus anti-rape slogans like "My body, my choice!"; this one simply begs to be found offensive in addition to stupid and desperately unfunny.

    So to some this all up, bad writing, bad acting, bad direction, a horrendous script, and a all too familiar plot adds up to one disastrous film... If I was force to have to watch this film while in flight, I would seriously consider using the emergency exit; yes, it's that bad!!!!
  • I bought the dvd when my local dvd store had a closing down sale, and the $4 I spent on it was wasted. It started off with a lot of potential, a simple plot about how different couples spice up a relationship but as it progressed the plot got harder to follow.

    It was unclear by the middle what these characters were trying to do, everyone was running around either naked or in their underwear for no other reason than trying for a cheap laugh.

    They plot relied heavily on the concept of 'its not what it looks like' but without even explaining to the audience what is actually was.

    Poor effort and actors wasted

    My best friend sort of coerced me into watching this, telling me what an amazing and sweet romantic comedy it was. I went over to her place to see it, and it turned out to be neither romantic nor funny in the least, just really bizarre and gross. We've got an old man who brags about his escapades in the bedroom with a camel, a border collie getting it on with a man, a woman putting her hand in dog crap in the garden, and that's just the beginning. Was that the actress who played Danielle Atron on the children's TV show 'The Secret World of Alex Mack' grabbing the crotch of the high school guy? Was the blond girl seriously just talking about having a threesome when she was in the middle of a shopping mall surrounded by people? I really didn't find any of this stuff funny. It was nothing but vulgar jokes about bestiality and sex and trans-gendered people, and a bunch of horny perverts trashing a beach scene. More than anything else, it was just very awkward and predictable, making it incredibly boring. For the right audience I'm sure it would be appreciated, but if weird fetish stuff and crude humour isn't your thing, I'd avoid this at all costs. I almost want to buy the DVD just so I can burn it in a massive backyard bonfire.

    let me start by just saying that i watched this film a month ago & the review slot was not opened & still there are no reviews for this let me be the first to give a review then,i have seen a lot of comedy films around the world,but mostly American when i saw this it reminded me of American pie & jackass series,to be honest here i think this film is better then American pie series the reason is simply of maintaining a little balance which i say the team of this film did successfully they didn't went to far like adding lots of useless sex scenes in it,i enjoyed TRFSA 2013 but it did left me wanting more as the climax was unexpected & ended too soon.

    the plot:2 couples have there 10 rules for sleeping around things get more awkward when Kate oliver decides to have little fun with it.

    the cast:i really liked the acting these guys did all of them were funny but i have to say Tammim Sursok is one beautiful lady,reminds me of other international actresses like Kate Bekinsale,Beren Saat & Areej Fatyma,the funniest guy ever was Ried Ewing specially in one scene where he is running naked around the house eventually goes out in the garden with a dog which was a little vulgar but made me laugh,most people will not like the character Kate Oliver because all the trouble & misunderstandings,people sleeping with each other started with her.

    the only bad thing here is the climax ending soon leaving the viewer wanting more of it,but that doesn't mean you wont enjoy it its totally worth the time,better then big budget comedy films coming but leaving no impact,the case here is this it did not totally rely on sex,comedy & style it presented a story also.the director Leslie Grief did the best here.the concept of the story is not new its been done before but it is still a entertainer.

    what more can i discuss here all i have to say it just watch it & leave your brain behind & you might actually like it forget the critical reception & hatred this is one of the best films made in 2013.

    Overall My Rating Is 7/10 For 10 Rules For Sleeping Around.Go See It: Recommended
  • This film begins with an attractive young woman named "Cameron Johnson" (Virginia Williams) asking her good friend "Kate Oliver" (Tammin Sursok) for permission to use her summer house in the Hamptons for the weekend. When Kate asks her what her plans are Cameron reveals that she has a date she would like to spend some time with. This shocks Kate because she knows that Cameron is married. It's then that Cameron tells her that she and her husband "Vince Johnson" (Jesse Bradford) have an arraignment where they are allowed to sleep around with strangers as long as they follow 10 basic rules. As it so happens, at that exact same moment, Vince is also telling Kate's boyfriend "Ben Roberts" (Chris Marquette) about their arraignment and encourages him to expand his horizons by asking Kate to allow another woman to join Ben and her in a threesome. However, when Ben does ask he is totally unprepared for Kate's response. For that matter, none of them are fully prepared for the pandemonium they unleash when they all try to fulfill their desires. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that there were some absolutely hilarious scenes in this film. Unfortunately, on more than a few occasions the director (Leslie Grief) wasn't apparently satisfied with that and kept pushing the envelope much too far--and by doing so he often turned a humorous scene into something that was quite vulgar and distasteful. That being said, I'm not sure if he was trying to make a statement or not but the end result wasn't something I particularly cared for and for that reason I have rated this film accordingly. Below average.

    The idea of a married couple trying to have an open marriage by following 10 rules that will guide what they may and may not do is a great premise with lots of comedy potential. I hope one day someone will make a movie based on this premise. In "10 Rules for Sleeping Around," we hear all the rules in an early scene, after which the entire movie involves running around trying to hide infidelities that would appear to violate none of those rules. It's a broad, obvious, screwball sex farce filled with fake identities and mistaken ideas about what other characters are doing, which is fine for those who like that sort of thing, and it does have some funny moments, but I was disappointed that there was nothing in this movie that had any relationship to the title or premise.

    This is a young adult sex romp comedy, or at least tries to be funny. Cameron (Virginia Williams) and her husband (Jesse Bradford) have an open marriage. They attempt to convince Owen (Bryan Callen) and Kate (Tammin Sursok) they should try it. Through a series of circumstances they all end up at a Hampton house complete with a young naked man, two girls from Craig's List, a Brazilian bombshell, and a decorator.

    While this is going on they try to hide it from a visiting author the guys want to sign. Confusion mounts as signs of infidelity are all around.

    The film wasn't funny. It took a standard formula and ruined it with a bad plot and idiotic dialogue. They just put one stupid thing on top of another without thinking if it was funny or not. It started out with promise and then fizzled fast.

    Not recommended even as a rental.

    Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity.
  • Yes, the other reviews saying that it's weird are correct. But that's what makes it interesting to watch. It ties together really well. Very unique film with many funny scenes. If anyone here gets sensitive about things and can't take a joke then don't watch it. The characters do a very well job acting their parts. I and my friend watched it together and could not stop laughing!
  • I am not sure why this has such a low rating on here. Probably because polyamory is such a touchy topic. But this is a very smart and funny movie. It is above average and deserves more than such a low rating.
